All donations will help us provide support, services and space for more autistic children, young people and their families.
We are a user led not for profit organisation. Driven by our desire to build a better future for autistic young people in our community, we created Express CIC in 2012. Express CIC is now a much loved and valued service for the community providing information and support to autistic children, young people and their families. What started as a desire to inform and support has now become the ‘go to’ place for 100's of families https://localgiving.org/charity/expresscic/
We run a busy ‘mini hub’ in Tolworth and provide:
Counselling for parents/carers
Specialist Counselling for autistic people 16+
Volunteer opportunities Why the community needs us
Express is an outstanding role model for diversity. With all our activities, we aim to engage the wider community and promote understanding and social inclusion, reducing isolation for young people and their families.
'They are a valuable resource for the community, filling in the gaps of the underfunded mainstream services. They are changing families lives in the area and do brilliant work'
'Express CIC is an amazing grassroots organisation supporting autistic children and young people. They always go over and above to support their community.' Our impact on the community
Parents & Carers who attend our events & groups, tell us how much they appreciate our support.
'It means so much to know you're all there with patience and understanding - quite simply - you get it!'
Our therapy groups provide young people with a safe space to express themselves, focussing on their wellbeing and mental health.
'We have noticed that S is so much more able to express how he is feeling, or how we are making him feel'
‘I noticed my daughter gradually began to embrace her autistic identity and grow in confidence.'
The next step is to set up a thriving community hub & café where young autistic people will be able to gain valuable social & life skills, Express themselves in an environment they enjoy.
Express CIC are looking for enthusiastic and committed volunteers, to volunteer as support facilitators at their weekly Drama Club. Drama@Express is a Drama club for autistic children and young people.
